A victory for K’Ogalo will see them hit the 40 point mark and open seven-point gap

Gor Mahia Captain Haron Shakava has called for caution as the defending champions take on Nzoia Sugar in a Kenyan Premier League match in Kisumu.

The league leaders will clash with Nzoia, who are sitting eight places below them on the table.

“It will not be an easy game (but) we will handle it with the seriousness it deserves,” said Shakava said ahead of the Sunday’s clash.

The match will also see Lawrence Juma, Boniface Omondi and Joachim Oluoch face their former employers should they be selected by head coach Dylan Kerr for the game that Gor Mahia will be looking forward to picking maximum point to consolidate their lead at the summit.

A victory for K’Ogalo will see them hit the 40 point mark and open seven-point gap between them and second-placed Mathare United.

In the last three league encounters, Gor Mahia heads into the match with a better record having picked all nine points in the last three meetings, scoring six goals in the process.

But K’Ogalo, who beat Nzoia by a solitary goal in the last match, will face a side that boasts of the league’s top scorer, Elvis Rupia who has scored 15 goals this season, just two shy of the 2017 record inked by Masoud Juma of Karibangi Sharks.
